Like many of you, I have been watching closely the unfolding events surrounding the mysterious death of Anna Nicole, Ex Playboy Bunny, alleged (and successful if true) gold digger, and TV personality, whose estimated net worth is around half a billion dollars.
Of course, my thoughts are mostly with our daughter and heir to those big bucks, Dannielynn. Yes, that is not a misprint. OUR daughter.
Time to confess. I know this will come as a shock to my readers (all 12 of you), to my family and friends, but most of all to my dear wife. But I must now “come clean”. With the death of Anna, I am now released from my promise to keep mum about our brief time together and the love child we created on the white sand beaches of Costa Rica.
I feel I must now come forth and accept my paternal responsibility (AND of course my responsibility to handle the financial affairs of our child!).
Who wudda thunk that Anna Nicole was a fan of Blog’s and more important, had been following my writing since 2002. Amazing, but true!
I was so surprised to receive her email almost two years ago. She was almost shy in her approach, but clearly, she felt “connected” to the man writing about his life in Costa Rica. “We HAVE to meet!”, I could almost hear her breathlessly saying those words. My heart raced faster.
“But I am taken” sez I. “I am happily married to a beautiful Tica whom I adore”.
“I KNOW” sez she. “It was your love expressed in words that drew me to you. I want to meet you, embrace you. I cannot imagine living without you. I am planning a trip to Costa Rica, and I want you to be my personal guide”.
Well to make a long story short, we DID meet and spent a long weekend together at her deluxe hotel in Guanacaste passing much of the time on the steamy hot beach. The passion never ceased!
Sadly, we had to part. She had her life and I had mine. Two worlds that were never to be one. Some weeks later, I received the news. She was pregnant with our love child. Of course I offered to do “the right thing”, but she broke gently the news that our love could never be… that she did not want to be the person who broke up another woman’s marriage. I was crushed.
Now, I must fess up to Maria Luisa. I am fairly sure she will forgive my indiscretion, especially when she hears about the cool 500 million bucks!
Please, dear readers… wish me well.
